This strong player returned in form
Despite the defeat of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Virat Kohli is happy with India’s leg spin bowler Yuzvendra Chahal bowling better in IPL 2021. Chahal is running out of the Indian limited overs team and the selectors did not include him in the squad for the T20 World Cup.
Team India’s doors can open
Kohli said, ‘Chahal’s bowling is very good now. He seems to have worked on his bowling all the time. His bowling well is a good sign for the team. Let us tell you that it is still possible for Yuzvendra Chahal to get a chance in the T20 World Cup. A BCCI source has told PTI that Varun Chakraborty’s knees are not in good condition, he is in pain. According to ICC rules, India still has a chance to make changes in the T20 World Cup squad till October 10. Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal will have a chance to join the T20 World Cup squad if Varun Chakraborty is ruled out of the T20 World Cup due to injury.
BCCI does not want to take risk
The BCCI medical team will have to work hard on Varun Chakraborty, whose knee is not fully healed. A BCCI source said, “Varun’s knees are not in very good condition, he is in pain, but if it was not for the T20 World Cup, the Indian team management would not take the risk of feeding him.” At present the focus is on relieving him of the pain for the T20 World Cup, after that rehab will be considered. Varun Chakraborty has so far taken 15 wickets in 13 matches at an economy of 6.73 in the current season of IPL.
Varun Chakraborty plays with injections
A BCCI source said, “The KKR support staff has prepared a detailed fitness program for Varun, he is also being given painkiller injections so that he can bowl four overs. These injections provide relief in pain. His pain is not visible on TV, but when he is not bowling it hurts.
